Salt and Watercolor

During this year I made a challenge to myself to try new techniques.  I saw a Water Color posting on Diane G blog . Click HERE for the Watercolor Challenge using Salt and Watercolors.
This is my first card using the Watercolor and Salt technique. I do like how the watercolor backgrounds turn out - especially this background.
